Narbeleth has performed live 4 times to the date, two of them at the first and 2nd editions of 6.6.6 Fest in Havana.

Narbeleth is a new experience for me as I've never heard of 'em before.
What you get here is raw,harsh and primitive black metal played the in the old school tradition.
That being said they have done a cover of Darkthrone's "The Hordes Of Nebulah".
And as I listen it reveals some pretty good melodies as well.

This is one of the first Cuban metal bands I've heard as far as I remember,and the first impression is good actually and their debut album is a quite solid one.

My favourite track on this album has to be "Walk Unholy Paths"
witch are a good track and shows what this band is capable of at their best in my opinion..

Personally I prefer "Hail Black Metal" their latest 3 track EP.
The tracks are faster and more hard hitting in general and gives a much better overall impression of the band! But then again it's a matter of taste.

I would advice you to give the album and ep a listen, as they are both good releases if you like traditional raw black metal,but as said above the "Hail Black Metal!" get the highest score from me simply 'cause it's a step forward musically.

Well worth checkin' out!
